I was unable to play along with MFT's Camp Create in June
because we were away on our trip to Denver,
so you can imagine how thrilled I was when I found
out that they were doing a second session this week!
So, today, I'm sharing the cards that I made for the first three days of camp.
Day 1's challenge was Fantastic Foiling.
I decided to diecut some of my Bazzill Gold Foil for the challenge.
For my card, I also used MFT's Wednesday Sketch 289:
I stamped a panel of white cardstock using my BG Etched Flower Background stamp,
which I heat embossed in white.
Over top, I blended aqua mist and harvest gold ink
and cut it into strips before adhering it to my card.
I diecut the "absolutely" from aqua mist cardstock and blended ink
onto the bottom half of it.
I diecut the fabulous from the Bazzill gold foil.
A few clear sequins finished it off.
Sage, Jonah & I volunteered at Vacation Bible School
at our church last week and I gave this card to our Children's Ministries Director.
She organized everything and did a fantastic job!
Here's the badge I earned:
Day 2's challenge was Colouring on Kraft.
At first, I was at a loss as to how I would complete this challenge,
because I don't have any MFT outline stamps that you colour in.
But then, I remembered the MFT BG Etched Flower Background stamp
and decided to use it to make my card.
I stamped it on kraft in versamark and heat embossed it in white.
Then, I coloured it in white three Zig Markers: Pale Pink, Light Pink and Light Coral.
It was cool to see how the different colours looked on the kraft!
I diecut the "absolutely fabulous" from black cardstock, adhering
the "fabulous" over a second diecut from a coaster to add dimension.
I gave this card to my friend, Kathy, who acted with me last week
in the skits at VBS -- she's so talented and fun!
I'm also linking these cards up for Day 2 of Heat Wave,
a class I'm taking this week at Online Card Classes:
For this challenge, I earned this badge:
And lastly, Day 3's Challenge was Inlaid Made Easy.
I started by stamping the flowers from Modern Blooms and Flashy Florals on my card base.
From that, I diecut the hello die (it came in my Flashy Florals kit)
and replaced it with one diecut from coral cardstock.
I stamped the "friend" sentiment from Soda Pop.
I added a border of the same coral cardstock, which I stamped repeatedly
using the Flashy Florals leaves in ruby red.
A trio of buttons and twine finishes it off.
I gave this card to a friend who also volunteered at VBS last week --
we met for coffee the other day in the afternoon and I just
wanted to let her know how much I appreciate her.
She really loved it and asked so many questions about how I made it. :)
Here's the badge I made:
Okay, so that's it for me for today...
Stop by tomorrow to see the cards I made for the last two days of Camp Create
-- that's right, I was a successful camper & earned all of my badges!
Thanks for looking!
